Wildflowers Going Extinct

Post  littlewid on Fri Sep 14, 2012 6:00 am

Some of these flowers I had never heard of but we all know it's now quite rare to see a wild flower garden or many wild flowers. It would be lovely to see a boom in wildflowers, maybe even councils like the one where WS lives planting a wild flower area.

This is an interesting read that also lists the top ten flowers that have become extinct and then the ones that are likely to become so.

Thanks Littlewid, an interesting and sad read. Wild flowers are so beautiful if only more councils would give it a go planting areas with them instead of bedding plants.

Perhaps we aught to start a petition or something to get other Councils in the UK to do this
